I had the privilege of having Maria do my makeup for a wedding I was a part of in Auckland, New Zealand. This was hands down the best makeup experience I have had. Having no idea of what look I was going for, I left it to the expert who used her years of knowledge to create the perfect look for me. Maria had seen my bridesmaid dress and we conversed prior to the wedding about what ‘look’ would reflect the special day. Not only was Maria punctual, but she was friendly and professional during my appointment. I appreciated that she was able to travel to the location. During my session, she talked me through what she was applying and answered my questions about her vast makeup collection, giving me advice for future makeup purchases. My makeup lasted over 14 hours!
I highly recommend Maria for any of your hair and makeup needs! I have had so many comments from friends, family and colleagues about my makeup. I guarantee I will be calling on Maria again for any future events.

Mia did my hair and makeup for my wedding in Manly. I found her to be extremely professional and she went out of her way to make me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I did a trial of both my hair and makeup before the big day, which I highly recommend as I was able to go through a few options. I brought along photos and Mia was able to recreate the look, with a few amendments to suit my hair type and skin. On the day itself, she arrived early and made me feel calm and relaxed by getting me ready on time and looking exactly as I wanted. Both my hair and makeup lasted the whole day and I had so many compliments. I would not hesitate to recommend Mia, both for her skill as an hair/makeup professional and for her personable nature.

Maria’s professionalism and friendly approach to her clients makes for an enjoyable experience being in the make-up chair, and I love working with her. Having worked with many make-up artists in my line of work as a singer and actor, Maria is a dream to work with!

She recently was briefed to create my look for two major events including Australian Bridal Fashion Week, and the Weddings and Events of Australia Bridal Industry Awards. At both events I was required to not only socialise with peers, but also perform onstage. The two looks Maria created for me seamlessly took me from dinner-guest to stage performer, and my look was glamorous yet elegant on both occasions.

As the director of my own artists agency, I’ve also recently engaged Maria to work with us on film and photography shoots for our musicians and artists at Event Entertainers, and will continue to work with her regularly. I suggest you book her now so we can all say we worked with her before she was famous! :)
